For California residents, coverage of ABA therapy is mandated by law. Here are the steps parents must take:
The child must have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), confirmed by a written report from a physician, psychiatrist, neurologist or psychologist.
The diagnostic report is submitted to your insurance company and authorization is requested for a comprehensive ‘Functional Behavioral Assessment’ (FBA).
Once the FBA is authorized, our highly trained Board Certified Behavior Analysts® (BCBAs) conduct the assessment through direct observation of your child as well as interviews with parents and teacher and questionnaires.
When an FBA is completed and submitted to the insurance provider, an authorization is sent generally within about two weeks.
We will be here to help during the approval process. If you have any further questions about insurance coverage of our services, please feel free to contact us.
